NFL Week 6 positional fantasy football rankings

2RM4P7N Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (1) hands off to running back Raheem Mostert (31) during the first quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars in an NFL preseason football game Saturday, Aug. 26, 2023, in Jacksonville, Fla. (Al Diaz/Miami Herald via AP)

Raheem Mostert is back to being a top-10 fantasy running back: With De’Von Achane injured and Jeff Wilson Jr. coming back from injury, Mostert should have a dominant game.
